The Grammys Became A Motown’s Greatest Hits Album – And It Was Awesome
February 15, 2016
We could listen to Lionel Richie's greatest hits all night long.
The singer proved his career spans generations after some of today's biggest musicians celebrated his more than 40-year career on-stage to pay their respects to Richie.
John Legend started the celebration of Richie's top hits with "Easy" by The Commodores.
It also included a performance of "Hello" by Demi Lovato, "Penny Lover" by Luke Bryan, "You Are" by Meghan Trainor and "Brick House" by Tyrese Gibson. It led Lionel himself to join the group for a rocking rendition of "All Night Long."
Then, another Motown icon, Stevie Wonder took the stage with Pentatonix to present the award for song of the year.
Wonder, alongside the a cappella group, broke out into a harmonized version of "That's the Way of the World" as a tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White, who died in February.
